Powerline Ethernet

I have a g4/800 running jaguar, three performa 6400/200's running 8.6 with ethernet cards, one of which is a designated "server" complete with server software. I'm wondering if I can use the powerline ethernet system to network the computers. The G4 and the server will be "hardwired via a hub" and the other two through the ethernet powerline system. First part of my question is, Is it even possible to network these systems through the powerline setup? and Second, If it is possible, my thought is that all I need is to have both 6400's hooked up with powerline ethernet, and then connect one of the powerline ethernet boxes to the hub. Possible?

Thanks for your help.
